You need to consider why the wall had fallen down in the first place.
How thick is the concrete block to be? Is there to be a bond between the stone and blockwork? If it is to be a gravity retaining wall (ie having no steel reinforcement), the foundation and wall thickness for a 2m high wall will need to be substantially more than you seem to be implying.
